With very nice weather, we were able to enjoy the day. The organization was very good. There were no further delays. The boat trip with electric drive in the picturesque fjord was very nice. Value for money. I can only recommend this tour. Robert from Luxembourg

Martin, a great guide for a city like Bergen. Wrap up warm, even in the middle of July, the weather in this part of the world is harsh.

A little bit tiring, and needed more time to visit Bergen a little bit more, but lot of views to remember

It was once in a lifetime experience. I would recommend to everyone who are visiting Norway.
